I need to interface between an older system that uses an RS232 port for reading/writing to a tape and a more modern computer that can manipulate the data and send it back. Is there a software+hardware combo to do this?
I work at a place that uses a ~20 years old scale (Hobart SP1500) that can interface via an "RS232 Tape Recorder." I want to see if I can load and store data via a more modern computer, probably my Raspberry Pi. We have to load a lot of data onto it and I would much rather write a quick program to gather the data and write it back to the scale's internal memory.
-Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask. I first looked through google searches and RPi communities.
